"The martial artist must be alert and prepared to defend himself at all times. Because he many not always have a sword strapped to his shoulders, he learns to use his bare hands and feet as weapons. He realizes that carrying too much makes him tired, distracted and unfocused, so he travels light. Traveling light also means he has fewer possessions to defend from thieves.
Possessions, in and of themselves, aren't bad. But often we spend far too much time and energy on them, at the cost of our relationships, personal goals and even enjoyment of those very possessions."
I've been scaling back hardcore this week. I've sold over 1,000 CDs and over 200 books. Got about 50 cents each, LOL.
